“Nice and Centrally Located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

The hotel was chosen due to its location in the Gang Nam area plus it represents good value to our group. The lobby is atypical business hotel. Our group arrived early and was told that they are willing to let us check in, albeit in smoking rooms only, hence we decided to wait and went out to tour the city.

The room furnitures is a bit dated but clean. Bed are comfy to sleep in. Huge TV and wireless internet provided in the room and lobby. Close to convenient store. Located on top of the hill, hence to get to cafes and convenient store is a dowhhill walk, but to get back is an uphill climb.

Noticed that there were a lot of hotels in the same road, Novotel, Ritz Carlton also the Dormi Inn, hence could try this area again if coming back to Seoul.

Didn't have the opportunity to check out all the facilities in the hotel though.

I booked the Best Western Gangnam based on price and generaly positive reviews and I was not dissapointed.
Gangnam area is a good base for a newcomer to the city as it has lots of coffee shops, convenience stores etc.. and a metro connection to the city centre.
The hotel was clean and the room bigger than expected.
Breakfast was not included in my rate but at ₩21,780 it could not be described as cheap but it did offer a big choice of dishes, so it set me up for the day and I saved money on lunch.

Hotel is quite old fashioned, but very good value. Hotel staff are excellent, and it is in a great location and on the same road as the Novotel, Dormy inn, at least 10 more hotels on Nonhyeon dong.
It is easy to get a taxi outside, and the Incheon bus stops hourly.
There are shops and convenience stores next door.

I had a chance to stay at the Best Western Premier in Gangnam for few days at the end of April, 2013. I was impressed by how nice the personnel of the hotel is, and how serviceable they are!! Especially Kelly Sung, who was able to get me an early check-in, and helped me with all the questions I had about what to do while in Seoul/South Korea!! The hotel location was perfect too in Gangnam; the Subway station, the market(s), and several other attractions where a walking distance from the hotel. The rooms were very quiet, and the bed was comfortable. Most importantly WiFi and American plugs were available too.

I stayed at the Best Western Gangnam for three nights on business and was not impressed. My first impression was poor as I arrived late morning and was told that, although my room was ready I would have to pay 30,000 won to check in before 2pm. I have never come across this before anywhere and is a terrible policy.

The hotel itself is tired and a bit worn, it looks like it's been a while since it was refurbished. The bed was a bit lumpy and the bathroom was small. The maid service was very good however as the place was always spotless.

I found the staff friendly and helpful but the whole experience was disappointing.

Very nice hotel. Nice staff. Great breakfast! Good location. Very clean. non smoking floors! great!! And for a hard winter, nothing better than a heated toilet seat!! So thoughtful!! :-) There is a bus shuttle to the airport right at the doorstep of the hotel (nice price also). There are many excellent restaurants in some small streets nearby. Small supermarkets nearby as well. And on the main avenue all possible shops you can think of!!!
